Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time:                                                 Not available
Barbecuing Time: 2 minutes
Servings: 4 (2 quesadillas per serving)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cooked Ontario Corn kernels
  • 1 medium Ontario Tomato, seeded and finely diced
  • Half small Ontario Sweet Red, Green or Yellow Pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) diced cooked ham or smoked turkey
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped fresh coriander (optional)
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) salsa
  • 8 flour tortillas (7 to 8-inch/18 to 20 cm)

Preheat barbecue to medium heat. In medium bowl, stir together corn, tomato, red pepper, Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, ham, coriander and salsa. Lay tortillas on baking sheet. Spoon about 1/2 cup (125 mL) filling on half of each; fold over to form semicircle.

Place on barbecue, pressing top slightly; barbecue for 30 to 60 seconds. With wide spatula, carefully turn so as not to spill filling (don’t worry, a little will probably spill out). Barbecue for 30 to 60 seconds or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately, whole or cut into wedges.
